Media Bias and the War on Terror

One of these pictures is not like the other.
All three are kids.
All three are victims.
Two are Syrian.
One is French.

If you are picking up what I am putting down, You can stop reading. If you are not, I will add this: It’s been 15 years since 9-11. The US media has never, and I mean never ever, published the photos of the victims at ground zero.

And their logic is pretty sound: if the US population actually saw what happened during 9-11 the drumbeat of war would have probably called for the use of nuclear weapons. For those who doubt me, have you ever seen what a jet engine does when it lands on people 60 stories below?

Have you ever seen what happens to a human body after it jumps from the 80th floor of the World Trade Center and lands on terra firma?

How about when that same human body actually hits a pedestrian instead of the concrete?

Actually none of you have to answer that question since I already know the answer. You don’t. Because the media collectively decided to suppress such details. Because…um….ask them.

Child killed by ISIS in France. Notice something different? You should.

But whatever answer they give you, see if their logic jives with the reporting about dead kids from Syria? And if we are so concerned about dead kids in Syria that we need to publish these images, then why aren’t we showing dead kids from Western countries?

Like I said, one of these things is not like the other.

    Two pictures fit the story line. We are supposed to feel bad for the unfortunate victim. The other picture doesn’t fit the media story line. So it must be covered up or not shown at all. I’m hoping more people realize what the media story line is trying to push.

    • The media today is as bad, or worse, as the “yellow journalism” from the past.

    What once could have been thought of as the Forth Estate, has proven itself to be no more than a 5th column to our freedoms time and time again. It has always been so, it is just that today we have freedom loving individuals who are willing to shoot their own video, and post it on-line letting people decide for themselves. This is driving the big media news companies crazy with anger because their narrative is being questioned and their bais exposed.

    • Corporate media, left and right, are complete shams these days. I’m more than thoroughly pissed off over it. I am motivated to do my own thing. Hence…John1911.com
